Credit Crisis Biggest Victims Get No Bailout / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Submissions

Amy Goodman writes: Taxpayers' bailout money for AIG bonuses has rightfully provoked a massive backlash against AIG, Wall Street, President Barack Obama and his economic advisers, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Larry Summers. The U.S. public now owns 80 percent of AIG. The outrage is bipartisan: Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley even suggested that AIG executives "resign or go commit suicide." New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo just released details on the bonuses, exposing AIG's ridiculous claim that they are "retention bonuses" aimed at keeping key employees, since 11 of those who received bonuses of $1 million or more are no longer employed by AIG.

Destruction of the Government in Three Easy Steps / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJoe Brewer writes: In eight short years, conservatives have effectively bankrupted many state governments and left the fed in shambles. And now citizens have to "make tough decisions" and share the suffering equally across the land (unless of course, you're part of that lucky 1% who co-opted the functions of government to serve their own ends... they'll be cozy with their offshore bank accounts, golden parachutes, and permanent tax holidays).

Systemic Financial Loss- Did You Ever Lose A Close Loved One? / Politics / Financial Crash

By: Michael_T_Bucci

dealing with systemic loss: facing the future and the death of your world - Did you ever lose a very close loved one? A child or a spouse or your closest surviving parent or sibling? Did they die suddenly or slowly. If slowly, did you toss between hope and despair over each stage of their catastrophic illness? Hoping against hope. Despair ever lurking. Signs of recovery one day, then relapse the next. If this did ever happened to you, you would understand the mind and emotions of the masses at this moment. They are facing death: the death of an income, a lifestyle, a home, a society, a system, a world.

The Mantra of Cutting Wasteful Government Spending Against Reality of Stimulus Spending / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast weekend, Ben Bernanke took an unprecedented gamble for a sitting Fed Chairman: he granted a long-form interview to 60 Minutes, America's most watched news program. There can be no doubt that the interview came about as the result of a coordinated strategy between the Obama Administration and the Federal Reserve. But was the decision to offer the public a rare look at the inner workings of the central bank an act of resolution or desperation?

Mark-to-Market Isn't the Problem / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt seems as if many have been fooled by those supporting the banks. The general argument that has been made is that mark-to-market accounting has been largely responsible for the banking mess since it creates price transparency for assets held on the books daily. Given the problems in real estate, mark-to-market has been particularly harmful to mortgage-backed securities. Therefore, as the argument continues, we should eliminate, suspend or revise mark-to-market rules because the price transparency it offers is not necessarily indicative of asset values. Finally, removing mark-to-market would help rescue the banks. I challenge these views.

AIG Larry Summers and the Politics of CDS Deflection / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinally US authorities have gotten ‘tough' with the predator financial institutions. The world has been waiting for such decisive intervention since an unending series of Government bailouts of financial institutions began early in 2008 amounting to now trillions of taxpayer dollars. Now, with the world's largest insurance giant, AIG, the White House Economic Council chairman, Larry Summers has expressed ‘outrage.' President Obama himself has entered the fray to promise ‘justice.' US Senators have threatened a law to change the injustice. The only problem is they are all exercising ‘politics of deflection,' taking attention away from the real problem, the fraudulent bailout.

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to LEAP/E2020, there are only two options left for the G20 leaders who gather next April 2nd in London: either they rebuild a new international monetary system, creating the conditions for a new global system that involves all the main global players, and reducing the crisis to a maximum of 3 to 5 years; or they strive to prolong the current system, thrusting the world into a decade long tragic crisis starting at the end of 2009.

The Financial Sector: "A House Burning Down" / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke’s False Analogy - Prof. Michael Hudson writes: On the March 15 CBS show "60 Minutes", Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke used a false analogy already popularized by President Obama in his quasi-State of the Union Speech. He likened the financial sector to a house burning down – fair enough, as it is destroying property values, leading to foreclosures, abandonments, stripping (for copper wire and anything else recoverable) and certainly a devastation of value. The problem with this analogy was just where this building was situated, and its relationship to "other houses" ( e.g ., the rest of the economy).

Bernanke's TALF Witness Protection Program / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFed chief Ben Bernanke's new funding facility is a real doozy. In fact, if the Term Asset-Backed Loan Facility or TALF, which is set to launch on Thursday, doesn't convince the American people that it's time to take a wrecking ball to the Central Bank and start over, than nothing will. Bernanke and his co-conspirator at Treasury, Timothy Geithner, are planning to revive the shadow banking system by dumping $2 trillion into the same over-leveraged, derivatives-based garbage that blew up the financial system in the first place. All the blabbering about a "good bank-bad bank" remedy appears to have been a diversion. This is how Bloomberg sums it up:

Jon Stewart & Jim Cramer's Staged Theatrics / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

I won't go into any type colorful description of the “showdown” between Jon Stewart and CNBC's Kim Cramer. If you're reading this you already know about it. What I want to talk about is the fact that this “highly anticipated showdown” was staged. In fact, it was the media that made it “highly anticipated.” It was the Hollywood theatrics used by the producers of both shows that made it a “showdown.” And chances are you feel for it.

Another Publicity Stunt by Obama and Geithner / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Mike_Stathis

It's been endless. Ever since Obama has entered office, he has continued to fool Americans by expressing his “outrage” and “shamefulness” of these ridiculous taxpayer-funded banking bonuses. Yet, the fact is that Obama has been playing naïve Americans. It's all an act designed to convince you he's mad. Yet, he has done nothing, proving what a puppet he really is. When will this charade end?

If the Obamites do not act now when the political time is ripest, to put into motion forces of deterrence and prevention, the casino capitalists of tomorrow will again be able to de-stabilize our economy.

The FDIC Depositor Insurance: as Rock Solid as Social Security / Politics / US Politics

We all should be painfully aware by now that there is nothing held inside the Social Security and Medicare trust funds but a bunch of IOUs. Monies collected from payroll taxes are treated as general revenues and used in the “unified budget.” But how many of us are aware that the FDIC's Deposit Insurance Fund works in a similar fashion?
